I am using Blue Responsive theme for my application and noticed that few important label templates like 'Optional with Help', 'Required with Help' etc are missing in this theme.

I see same exist in Green Spring theme but I do not like that theme.

I am not able to figure out how to update Blue Responsive theme to add additional label templates. Also made a copy of it, but still not sure how to do it.

Appreciate your feedback and if you could let me steps how to achieve this. Thanks for your help.

Did you intentionally choose the Blue Responsive theme (because of what responsive web design means), or did you just like the colors? If the first, have a look at Apex documentation - Managing Themes (contains "About Using Theme 25 to Create a Responsive Design" section as well), maybe you'll find it useful. If the latter, well, Apex offers zillion of themes - choose some other "normal" theme you find attractive.

I was able to find out that there is no need to select 'Optional with Help'. As long as we add Help Text for the item, it automatically shows '?' icon for the help. Pretty Cool !!!!

Also, following article helped me to add tooltip as well:

Regarding Themes, I only see these 2 themes: Blue Responsive and Green Spring. Any idea how do I see additional themes or add them to my app?

An application uses one theme at time. You can switch to another theme if you wish. How? Read the same document I pointed you to in my previous message, "Switching an Active Theme" section.
